Arsene Wenger has revealed that he could have lost his job after the Gunners FA cup final in 2014.
The French man who has been in charge of the Gunners side since 1996 revealed that had he not won the FA cup final against hull in 2014, he could have lost his job. The victory against Steve Bruce side two years ago ended the Gunners nine years without a trophy.
Wenger was already under enormous pressure from both fans and pundits as the team had gone years without a trophy prior to the game. The Gunners found themselves two goals down before coming from behind to win the game 3-2.
“I don’t know, honestly, I don’t know,” said Wenger when asked if he would have lost his job if Arsenal had failed to win.
“It was up in the air and we had to give everything to win that final. If we had lost it I don’t know.
“It would have been a problem if we had not won. It would have been a massive disappointment for everyone, but we won.”
The manager signed a new three year deal few days after the victory and the French man added:
“Usually I respect my contracts and I fight for everything. I think as well to say to you that if 17 years at a club depend on one Cup final, it is better you don’t go to the final.”
